Jay Anderson - Beyond Time
While it slowly turned to slush and the green of the surrounding parkland emerged, the white woollen webbing of her installation was thickening, taking on a vaulting, cathedral-like form of its own, twisting around the windows, drifting up to the ceiling from its anchor points on the flagstone floor, secured by stone footplates apparently taken from the organ that used to live here.

But it also represents renewal. Installation view. Photograph: Veronica Simpson. The first time Shiota saw the chapel, it was a classically overcast Yorkshire day, so the sunshine that is streaming through its arched windows when we visit the finished work is a bonus, casting slabs of light on to the flagstone floor and an ethereal luminescence over its temporary woollen occupant.

But when the artist saw the chapel, there was no hesitation. I create something out of nothing. But the chapel … is a spiritual place.
It has existed for hundreds of years and you can feel this when you enter it. Installation view, sun and shade. It took 12 people herself, five assistants she brought from Berlin, and six assistants supplied by the YSP 12 days to weave this installation, using 2, balls of white thread. From the first webbing work she made Return to Consciousness, , in Japan , she has never had a diagram or plan in her mind, she says.
She works intuitively, responding to the space. I ask her what her feelings were in creating this piece, Beyond Time. Quiet and calm, but also exhausting — weaving never ends; at the beginning it looks like it is not enough, it will never be finished.

Everything changes. Then you get the sense of fun and achievement. A steel sculpture whose outline evokes a piano but is definitively not a piano made for the exhibition, but not by Shiota stands at the centre of the chapel, the white webbing and paper sheets seeming to fly from its frame, upwards and out, like a cascade of silenced sound.
